A few weeks ago I posted on one of the threads that in three years time we would all forget Hilton Cartwright ever played for us.
I've revised that opinion. The people we tend to forget are those who were neither brilliant, nor dreadful. I think that those who are still here in 30 years time will remember the name Hilton Cartwright. It could have been even worse batting wise if the bails had come off when he was 'bowled' on 0 against Leicestershire. That led to his best score of 80.

Yes, he picked up wickets, but would you be happy with a number 9 who scored 50's, but never took a wicket?

Chunky has made several valid points. As we have seen, we are likely to remember Cartwright because of the glimpses which we have seen of his undoubted potential.

Several of our overseas cricketers (e.g. Gomes and Philander) have undoubtedly prospered elsewhere.

A surprising number of cricketers have performed well against type. It can not possibly help team planning although an unanticipated versatility can have its uses.

Everyone deserves a little luck. Perhaps it has something to do with the law of averages.
